I had not head of this new museum until my tour guide recommended it on the volcano tour. As it's situated out of the way near Megalochori village it would certainly benefit from more publicity. It would also be helpful to have a bus stop opposite the museum rather than having to walk back two hundred metres alongside a busy road!

The 12€ entrance fee may seem steep but a lot of money has gone into this project with the latest high tech interactive exhibits. This includes a sense-surround cinema where you watch a stunning recreation of the Minoan eruption and get spattered with water as your chair rocks back and forth in time to the events on the screen. Other activities include being able to dress as a Minoan on screen and walking across hot lava!

The friendly staff give you a personal guide through the museum which is geared mainly towards families and adults who like to have fun while they learn. The theme is Plato's description of Atlantis that does seem to be accurate when applied to Thera's caldera. There are other sites contending to be Atlantis and these are mentioned as well, although Santorini does seem the most likely inspiration. I would have liked a more complete examination of Plato's account including where it differs.

Although very interested in the Legend of Atlantis wads not aware of theis interactive museum until driving passed it. All the interactive features are well thought out with very clever graphics. The 9D experience is enjoyable with the chair movements, water spray, sulphur cloud affect etc. There is a large car park and bus stop across the road so access is easy from all parts of the island. There are lots of staff to direct you to each feature and the gifts in shop are reasonably priced. Worth a visit

Booked this experience online the day before, to avoid queueing, but in the event the line was short. Travelled by Local Bus from Fira and dropped off about 200yds away. This experience is advertised as the one and only museum dedicated to the Myth of Lost Atlantis. It. Explains the Philosophy, History, Geology and Mythology around them Lost City of Atlantis. It includes an amazing ‘9D’ experience which rivals any I have ever seen (more often billed as 4D). Taking you through the origins of Santorini as it is today, with volcanic eruptions and tsunamis that destroyed the Minoan civilisation and gave rise to the island of Santorini as we know it today. Takes around 1 hour of relaxed interactive presentations and entertainment. An outstanding experience for a reasonable outlay. Excellent for couples and families of all ages. Recommend unreservedly.

Amazing find in the middle of nowhere. The history, photo opportunitys, the interactive video experience and high tech information boards were well worth the $12 entrance fee. This is a jewel of a find. Alot of money are time when into this and I hope they can survive since is in an out of the way location.

Small but charming Museum that focuses on the legend of Atlantis, embracing modern technology to show all the evidence and how the myth is connected to the island of Santorini. We were especially stunned by the 9d experience that showed the apocalypse of Atlantis. Admission is 12€ pP, there is a free spacious parking lot in front and lockers for your bag inside. Would recommend 👍🏻

A nice place too cool down but really for kids. Makes very heavy use of footage from the TV drama about the eruption, if seen this will learn nothing new. Not that hi-tec, mostly just telly screens. The 6D experience was pretty basic and the whole visit was certainly not worth the cost nor the bus trip to get there.

Dear visitor, your opinion is welcomed and respected. But inaccuracies for the museum are not. In the museum except the 9D experience there is knowledge and plenty of exhibits for the history, mythology, philosophy, and geology of Santorini. Multiple different cutting-edge technologies like 9D Cinema experience, holograms of a philosopher, interactive floor and wall, gazing at the diorama of a mythological city with augmented reality, among others, are certainly not “just telly screens”. Innovative technologies as exhibits are not just for kids but the future in museum culture. We are sorry that we did not meet your expectations mostly due to the ticket price and the bus trip, we wish you enjoy the rest of your vacations on the island.

What a fantastically modern museum! My partner & I went to visit on a Sunday morning as soon as it opened so we were the only people there. We got our own guided tour (I don’t know if they do this for everyone or if it was because it was so quiet but was amazing to have). The guide spoke very good English & took us step by step around the interactive displays. The 9D cinema experience was great & we loved the talking Plato...reminded us of the film The Night of the Museum when the characters come alive. I think the whole experience took us around an hour but you could spend longer. Definitely definitely definitely worth a visit. We had been to visit ancient ruins earlier in our stay at Santorini and the museum explained in more detail what we saw there so do both, they go hand in hand. Have fun!! X

We had a great time, my 12 year old and 14 year old really liked it.

It is a small museum, you can spend like 1 hour and 30 minutes there. It was lost of fun

I discovered this place by chance, just saw it crossing with the bus during a tour. As I have always been fascinated by the myth of Atlantis I decided to came back the day I was exploring the island with a quad. It’s the perfect example of hidden gem. This museum has a lot of interactive panels and uses modern technology to present facts on Atlantis. The video in 9D is amazing, I loved it. There is also an amazing diorama with animated screens. The staff has been very kind and friendly, one guide for the upper floor and one for the lower floor. Absolutely recommended.

My husband and I loved this small museum , it was one of our favourite things we did whilst in Santorini. it is a mixture of inteesting historical and geological information about the island as well as history about Plato and Atlantis, all done in a really easy to understand and fun way. The staff who work there are so enthusiastic and love to show you around the interactive exhibits. We had such a fun couple of hours there I would recommend to everyone to visit
